The nation is ready for Robert Mueller to begin getting to the point of his lengthy, secretive, and almost certainly tainted investigation into possible “collusion” between the Trump team and nefarious Russian forces.
For two years now we’ve waited, while numerous other probes have been completed, exonerating the President of any such treason. Mueller, however, pushes forward, with little else to show for his efforts than a few process charges on some loose acquaintances of the leader of the free world.
Amid the numerous controversies wrapped up within the Mueller debacle is the idea that the President himself will be interviewed by Mueller himself…the details of which will need to be ironed out well ahead of time. A kink in the plan has emerged, however, after Mueller’s probable line of questioning toward the President leaked.
Let’s just say, it isn’t pretty.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office wants to ask President Donald Trump about obstruction of justice, sources close to the White House tell ABC News. According to sources, the president learned within the last day that the special counsel will limit the scope of questioning and would like to ask questions both orally and written for the President to respond to.
According to sources familiar with the President’s reaction Wednesday morning, that was the genesis for his early morning tweet storm. Trump took to twitter in one of his strongest attacks against the federal probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, saying: “This is a terrible situation and Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further. Bob Mueller is totally conflicted, and his 17 Angry Democrats that are doing his dirty work are a disgrace to USA!”
This can only mean one of two things: Either Mueller really believes that all of his petty paperwork charges he’s pinned to people like Paul Manafort are going to bring down the President of The United States, or he’s bluffing.
Mueller could very well be testing the waters of the President’s anxiety level by laying this leak as a trap, awaiting the response from the White House. Now, whether or not that will be an official response by Sarah Sanders tomorrow afternoon, or a late night tweet storm from the President himself has yet to be seen.
